Semiarundinaria okuboi is a very fast grower with broad leaves for a bamboo giving it a bold, tropical look. It makes an excellent choice to contrast with finer leaved bamboo’s and also grows well indoors.



Very hardy and fast growing, Okuboi can take high wind and weather. It’s a good choice for thick, dense growth and 15′ or so of height coverage.  The canes are very slender but also strong and upright in character with wide, tropical looking leaves.

Okuboi grows well in large containers and needs to be thought out if you put it in the ground.  We’ve kept ours raised in a mound, supplemented with seasonal maintenance and it’s perfectly contained.  If you’re thinking about a privacy screen or a large planting, we can extend the price to large rootballs too.
